For the Shards of Everdark monster, see Shade.

Shade is a monster in the Second Edition Conversion Kit. There is also a version of this monster in Shards of Everdark.

Description

It's unknown whether these undead creatures are the result of necromantic magic, or if they are merely tormented souls unable to find peace. Whatever their origin, these ghostly aberrations look like tattered, hovering, hooded cloaks, their raised hoods empty save for twin points of frozen light where their eyes used to be. Shades hate the living, and their jealousy causes them to moan and wail as they seek to snuff the life from all who venture close. The most evil shades have a blue glow to their "eyes", while the eyes of lesser shades are yellow.
